Black Raspberries Progressive

5 ounces of Bee Mice Elf in the Superheroine colorway, 
972 yards, 2 ply. : )

Received this for Christmas and spun up very quickly.
The first spin which used my new Kromski Minstrel Bulky Flyer!
Still had to split the spin in half but it was understandable due to the final yardage....

Mint Chocolate Secret of Change Shawl

Love this shawl of my hand spun; it knit up so quickly.

Size 6 needles, 838 yards of my handspun of a Polwarth/Silk 
non-repeatable blend from Fiber Optic Yarns.

Chain plied with 144 + 164 + 170 + 138 = 616 yards.
Love the final yarn, but I'm unsure what to do with it due to the yellow/orange.... 

8 ounces of 100% Corridale, 
Pastels colorway.

Orenburg Wrap 
I had the privilege to test knit for Natalia Shepeleva
 and her Orenburg Style Wrap pattern : )

Her pattern is clearly charted and is very intuitive.
 Size 3 needles, two skeins of Cascade Yarns Alpaca Lace in the Ecru colorway.

Emily, Take Two

  The second time I've spun this colorway; this time for me.
Greenwood Fiberworks in the Emily colorway, 4 ounces of 100% Polwarth wool.
The braid did come in two irregular pieces and I did a bit of color management
 to get the colors to mostly match up.

Deadly Nightshade
Lovely chain ply spin with 100% Superwash Merino 
from Into The Whirled in the Death colorway.
4 ounces, 647 yards.
Discovered with this skein that my niddy noddy was too large and so I had to go back and recalculate my yardage for all of my previous handspun. I finally figured out exactly how off it was from 2 yards and wrote an equation into my graphing calculator which saved my quite a bit of time.
